When PSY-HARMONICS began in 1992, it was the first local (Melbourne) label to explore the sonic possibilities of the techno sound.
As the pace and volume of the techno movement grew and fractured around the world PSY-HARMONICS was at the forefront of releasing electronic music and that defined being unlimited to one genre.
It success lied to its ability to release music of enormous variety whilst maintaining an identity that is recognisable without being predictable. Arguing that electronic music in itself shouldn’t be blamed for the lack of soul in much of todays music. it aimed to help listeners appreciate the wide gap between synthesised pop and more creative electronic music.
Electronic music is a much broader thing than techno and dance, the simplicity of pop has always been there, commercial radio stations wanted music that makes there jingles sound less offence.
The beauty of technology is that it allows you to traverse different paths than you would with a typical band line up, but these things are just tools, its up to the composer to extract good things out of them. Its the performance that is important and even with electronic music the personality comes through.
When PSY-HARMONICS ceased in 2009 it had over 75 releases featuring from a wide array of artists including:
OLLIE OLSEN, THIRD EYE, SHAOLIN WOODEN MEN, ANTEDILUVIAN ROCKING HORSE, ZEN PARADOX, LUMAKANDA, MYSTIC FORCE, RIP VAN HIPPY, GREA AREA, SNOG , JOUJOUKA, AOA, MASARAY, SUSUMU YOKOTA, HESIUS DOME, THE VISITORS, SNAKE THING EYE, REE K, MIMESIS and many more
